Deonna and Ran Clarkson

Our amazing building manager Deonna was recently handed a challenge.  Her husband of 41 years, Ran, was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 lung & brain cancer. 

Ran has been unable to work at his very special gift of teaching sign language to kids through stories and books (Deonna illustrates the books) 
for the last few weeks as his symptoms have been debilitating and while ongoing many tests. 

The doctors want to start the radiation/chemo immediately on the lung/brain instead of having to wait until he’s recovered from brain surgery.   That will start next week. 

So far insurance is covering  the medical expenses but I'd like to help them with the day-to-day expenses that are going to need to be covered in the meantime so they can concentrate all their time and energy into the support and healing of Ran.

Please donate if you can and send them all the love, healing wishes and prayers that you have. 

I have hope and I'm not afraid to use it!
